REGISTER FOR THE 107TH PATRIOTS DAY 5 MILE ROAD RACE VIRTUAL,
PRESENTED BY THE LEXINGTON LIONS CLUB
The Lexington Lions Club Patriots Day Road Race is a critical fundraiser for our "Journey for Sight", and it has a long and rich tradition for runners from Lexington and around the region. First run in 1914, the Patriots Day Five Mile Road Race is one of the oldest Road Races in the country. This year’s race will take place virtually to prioritize the health and safety of our runners, our volunteers and our community.
While we’re disappointed that we had to cancel the 2020 race due to COVID-19, and it continues to prevent us from enjoying Patriots Day in person, our cause to preserve this historic race remains strong. We will be running 5 miles together virtually to support the mission of the "Journey for Sight" which raises money for eye disease research. Be a part of the Birthplace of American Liberty on the anniversary of the first day of the American Revolution.
- Distance: Run 5 Miles
- Date: Historically the Patriots Day Race would take place on Monday, April 19, 2021 at 10:00a.m. but for this year, we’re giving all participants an 8-day window (April 12–19) to complete their 5 miles.
- Where: Wherever you’d like! While we are disappointed not to be on the Battle Green in Lexington with our friends and family, we can still honor the tradtion in our own neighborhood as we run our 5 miles virtually.
